Armando bats for Miami in NFL Network's 2013 On the Beat

Like Duke, Armando knows what's up when it comes to Washington's Desmond Trufant. - Harry How

Armando Salguero, The Phinsider's second-favorite media whipping boy, recently called in to NFL Network's On the Beat mock draft segment to make the Miami Dolphins' selection at No. 12. Good news: he didn't eff it up. Yay.

When it comes to the 2013 NFL Draft, Miami Herald writer Armando Salguero smells what The Duke is cookin'.

Salguero recently called in to NFL Network's On the Beat mock draft segment to make the Miami Dolphins' selection at No. 12 overall.

His pick? That would be Washington cornerback Desmond Trufant.

"The fact of the matter is the Dolphins in 2009 take two cornerbacks. Sean Smith left in free agency this year; you know, they had Vontae Davis (who) Miami traded before the beginning of last year," Salguero said during the On the Beat segment. "They don't have a starting cornerback on the roster. It's time to get some starting cornerbacks on the roster. Trufant is the pick."

Eloquently said ... I think. Nevertheless, The Phinsider's very own Chris Early (known to many of you as "Duke") has been singing Trufant's praises since last fall, and stated in January that he believed the Washington cornerback would be the Dolphins' first-round selection in 2013. Makes sense, too, as Trufant is a high-upside, scheme-diverse talent who possesses the blazing speed (official 4.38 in the 40-yard dash) and instinct to thrive at the NFL level. I don't often agree with Armando Salguero, but when I do, it's in regard to Desmond Trufant.

Salguero's spot on NFL Network will hopefully open the door for Sun Sentinel writer Omar Kelly to appear on a future edition of the station's On the Beat series--a segment in which Kelly will surely call network analyst Akbar Gbaja-Biamila a "fake gangsta" while directing studio personality Steve Wyche to "go to the corner" for trying to initiate quarterback talk before 8:15 a.m.
